The guide was very informative!
The trip was worth the money, except we picked a very cold day to travel. It would be much better to get outside for photo ops.
Great 2 hour tour around the island. Cruised past the statue of liberty, under many bridges and was able to see the city from the outside. Would recommend this.
This is a great way to see the city from a different perspective- we went with the VIP upgrade - this gave us very good seats and a server who got us our drinks to save joining the queue downstairs as well as a bag of cookies to take away with us! The guide, David, was very knowledgeable and pointed out all the sights with humour, he was quite a character. It was a very worthwhile trip, highly recommended
Due to bad weather we did not get to do this cruise - next time will be a definite.
The tour was nice. We bought the premiere seating based on other reviews, but I felt we could've done without it because during the tour everyone can get a good view of the landmarks. The premier seating just had better chairs, you received free cookies, and the servers came to you to take your order.
I had a great time and the views was great. I did try to get some pics of a few places but the boat had sped up though. All and All I will recommend taking this trip.
Great way to see the city from the water. Purchased the VIP package, would definitely recommend this. If weather on the colder side, recommend dressing in layers - it gets windy out there.
Good tour ruined by awful tour guide
I called The tour line and asked them if we could reschedule because of bad weather but no one called me back.
